WIAW: Two Breakfasts

Posted May 15 2013 4:54am

Happy WIAW everyone! Half way through the week already, bring on the weekend! I'm actually headed for a night out to Bangor with both my sister and Iestyn on Saturday, something I haven't done in awhile and I'm really looking forward to it, I just need to figure out what to wear!

For today's WIAW I will be sharing what I ate on Monday. Monday morning I dragged myself out of bed at 6.30 to get to CrossFit. I really feel for you that have to get up that early, or even earlier, every day, I am just not a morning person! Before leaving the house I ate my first breakfast of half a Trek cocoa oat bar, and a gala apple. Apologies as these went un-pictured, but I really don't function well in the mornings.

Once the WOD was over I headed into work where I made myself a second breakfast to eat at my desk: two slices of avocado bread topped with almond butter and blueberries. This would of been lovely if the flaxseeds hadn't gone rancid like I mentioned yesterday , but thankfully the blueberries made it just about edible, as I was hungry and had no other options for breakfast at work, and I can't function when hungry!

My morning snack was the other half of the Trek Cocoa Oat bar with a mug of tea. These bars are so indulgent!

Lunch was leftovers from the night before, lamb mint meat balls with spinach, rocket, cherry tomatoes and a mint and cucumber yogurt dip.

Mid afternoon I ate a pink lady, which also escaped the camera.

For dinner I had a treat planned: steak! I was actually eating alone so I thought I'd treat myself, sorry Iestyn! I always feel a bit lost when it comes to cooking steak, I haven't got a clue what the different cuts are, or what the best way to cook a steak is, but I figured that the only way to get better is to practice! This one was almost perfect, it was just cooked slightly too long as I would of liked it slightly more pink: I'll do better next time! Alongside the steak I had red onions, mushrooms and asparagus, as well as a spoonful of mustard. I really should eat steak more often, it is more expensive than other cuts of meat, but it never disappoints!

With my evening mug of tea I could not resist one of these Orange Coconut Macaroons . There might not be very many left...!

For those of you who exercise in the mornings, do you have two breakfast's? Who have a policy at the Box that we have to eat before a morning WOD, or else! However there is no way I will get up any earlier to eat a bigger breakfast, so I tend to eat a snack before going, and then something else again once I get to work.

What is the best thing you ate today? Before this morning's CrossFit session I had a slice of seeded bread, spread with almond butter, and topped with fresh strawberries: sounds lovely doesn't it?
